5-0 at Mustang Duals

Section 3 Match of the Week #4

Section 3 wrestling community, stand up! It is time yet again to break down a Section 3 Match of the Week, and believe it or not, this is already the fourth week of the season. Three weeks of excellent matches and exciting battles have already passed, and this fourth week looks like it will be filled with more of those. In fact, when I put up a poll to see which dual would be voted Match of the Week, I had to list almost ten duals, instead of the normal five, because there are so many good duals this week! (This is also a PSA -- for those of you who do not know, every week (usually beginning on Sunday or Monday) you can head to the “Forum” part of the website and vote for the Match of the Week!)

Last week’s Section 3 MOTW proved to be a good one, as the matchup between Marcellus and Homer ended with the Mustangs coming out on top 36-33. Considering the first two MOTWs this season (Fulton def. CNS 58-19 and Indian River def. General Brown 69-9) proved to be rather lopsided, it was refreshing to see a big dual come down to the wire like Marcellus vs. Homer did. That dual was a back and forth affair, as the lead changed hands four times and things were actually tied up with four matches to go. Homer took three of the first five matches, two of those wins a pin from Tavyn Malchak (220) and Sam Sorenson (285), and they lead 15-10 after six weight classes. Marcellus then got a forfeit at 106, a pin at 113 from Ethan Ciota, and a tech fall at 120 from Carl Santariello, which all gave them a 27-15 lead. Jacob Rice (126) and Carter Monroe (132) then got things back on track for homer with back-to-back pins, and that tied the score at 27 with four weights to go. Marcellus’ two-time State Qualifier Dylan Price then got a forfeit at 138, but Kaiden Haynes picked up a solid decision win at 145 for Homer to counter. That made the score 33-30 for Marcellus with two bouts to go. In what looks like dramatic fashion, Tim Okhman then scored a big victory for the Mustangs, as he gutted out a 7-6 overtime win at 152 to stretch Marcellus’s lead to 36-30. Jakob Denkenbeger then got a win for Homer at 160 in the final bout, but it was by decision, so Marcellus held on for the exciting 36-33 victory.

Now that last week’s MOTW has been recapped, it’s time to look at this week’s. On deck is Liverpool vs. Baldwinsville, in what is a battle of SCAC Metro League foes, both of whom are undefeated to start the year. Liverpool is off to a 7-0 start and just went 5-0 to win the Brett Dixon Memorial Duals this weekend, and they also defeated out-of-Section 3 Fairport in a much-anticipated dual earlier this month. Baldwinsville, meanwhile, is 2-0 in duals, having picked up solid victories over Hannibal (42-36) and West Genesee (45-37) this month. The Bees have also had two solid individual tournament performances, as they took 9th out of 19 teams at the Andersen Tournament, and 5th out of 17 at the Phoenix Round Robin last weekend. This leads us to the big question -- which team will continue their successful start to the season when Liverpool and B-Ville square off this Wednesday?

Dual Details:

- Liverpool Warriors (7-0) vs. Baldwinsville Bees (2-0)
- Wednesday, December 18th, 2019
- 7:00 PM
- 29 East Oneida Street, Baldwinsville, NY, 13027 (Charles W. Baker High School)

Lightweights (99, 106, 113, 120, 126)

Liverpool: Two brothers headline the lineup for Liverpool from 99 to 126. Both Jeremy Ianno and Jacob Ianno are off to very solid starts this season, and they have a combined record of 17-1 at the moment. Jeremy is 10-1, and he has been 4th in Section 3 two years in a row and was a Class AA Champion last season. Jacob is 7-0, and he was Top 6 in Section 3 in 2018 and a Class AA Runner-Up last season. Along with the Iannos, wrestlers like Lucas Smith, Matt Spoto, and Rocco Degiormo help to add a little depth for LP in these weights.

Baldwinsville: 99 to 126 may be Baldwinsville’s strongest part of their lineup. Kicking things off at 99 is Jarred McMonagle, who is 8-3 so far this season. Next up is Aiden Cali at 106. Cali is fresh off of a 1st place finish at the Phoenix Round Robin, and he was also 4th in Section 3 last season. Mason Clark, a Sectional Qualifier from last season who is currently a solid 6-4, is after that at 113. Max Naples comes in at 120, and he is 7-3 this season after coming within one victory of placing in Section 3 last season. All four of these aforementioned wrestlers placed at the Phoenix Round Robin, while 126-pounder Kaylob Deyo went a solid 3-2.

Middleweights (132, 138, 145, 152, 160)

Liverpool: The Warriors have two more Iannos off to a good start in the middleweights with Dom Ianno, who is currently 10-1 with nine pins, and Chris Ianno, who is currently 5-1 with four pins. Jonah Geller and Jeremiah Paulsen are also off to good starts for LP here, as Geller is 5-1 and Paulsen is 7-4. Both Geller and Paulsen were one victory away from being Top 6 in Section 3 a year ago, as was C. Ianno. Liverpool has some solid depth in this portion of their lineup, as Isaiah Cordova (4-1), Jeremy Valerio (4-2), and Paul Marquis (4-5) are also off to decent starts this season.

Baldwinsville: B-Ville runs into a little bit of trouble here in the middleweights. When trying to cover all five weights from 132 to 160, the Bees get spread a little thin. They forfeited 152 in their first dual against Hannibal, but in their last dual against West Genesee, they were able to cover each weight. Out of their wrestlers in the middleweights, Brandon Levin is probably off to the best start for B-Ville, while Liam Fitzgerald brings some experience from last season to the group.

Heavyweights (170, 182, 195, 220, 285)

Liverpool: Hamier Williams-Borges leads the way for Liverpool in their heavyweights. Williams-Borges is currently 8-3 with seven pins, and last season he had over 25 wins and qualified for Sectionals. Adding to the depth for the Warriors from 170 to 285 are guys like Gianpaul Cooper, Josh Gatewood, John Worthen, and Jake Ronan, who are all off to decent starts for 2019-20. Gatewood is just 2-0, but Ronan is 5-2, Cooper is 4-3, and Worthen is 3-0. Also, there is the possibility that someone like Chris Ianno bumps up to 170 from the middleweights here.

Baldwinsville: A trio of solid heavyweights lead the way for Baldwinsville here. Having the best season so far in this trio is Mike Kral, who is impressively 9-2 with eight pins currently. Fred Pickard, just an 8th grader, is 5-2 with four pins, and then Naseim Perez rounds out this trio and the Bees’ lineup at 285 behind a 7-4 record with seven pins.

Final Words

In this battle of top SCAC Metro teams, it seems that Liverpool emerges with a little bit of an edge. The depth of Liverpool plays a key factor, and it’s hard to imagine that it wouldn’t considering their 60-person roster. B-Ville looks like they have the edge early in the lightweights, but Liverpool’s depth (which includes the four Iannos, Geller, and Paulsen) make it hard for B-Ville to keep any edge from 120 to 170. Even if the Bees hang with or even top Liverpool in the other weights -- 182 to 285 -- LP’s edge in those middle eight weights might be the difference here.

Wrestling is a simple sport. When you step onto the mat, it's you versus someone else. There's not much fancy equipment or anything else. It's not about anything, other than strength and skill and heart. It's about being Built to Lead.

Built to Lead Wrestling presented by the USMC Sports Leadership Academy provides you with first-class instruction from elite coaches. But, more than that, it provides you with intangible skills that make you Built to Lead.

Through a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, you will learn what it takes to be the best, to be the first in the gym and the last to leave it.

At the event, participants will participate in skill sessions, as well as receive a Built to Lead Evaluation at the end of the day. Between skill sessions and evaluation, participants will have the opportunity to be challenged, motivated, and to interact with members of the U.S. Marine Corps and learn key skills from the men and women who best exemplify what it means to lead. What it means to have enthusiasm and integrity, courage and loyalty, initiative and endurance.

Every player needs these skills. Every coach wants these players.

Do you have what it takes?  Are you Built to Lead?
